A new study out of Oxford has shown that without concerted action, the environmental pressures of the food system could increase by 50-90% by 2050. This means our planet cannot support the way we currently grow and eat our food. However we can make a difference in our homes and gathering in our places of worship. Adopting healthy and more plant-based diets globally could reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the food system by more than half. Also, halving food loss and waste could, if globally achieved, reduce environmental impacts by up to a sixth.

Informing yourself about how your food impacts the climate is important. You can make a real difference by making small changes in the way you eat and by making sure the food you do buy does not go to waste.
